4-Hours - Rhodes Medieval Town

Rhodes

We start the panoramic drive through the New Town of Rhodes. We will pass the Mandraki Harbour, the Post Office, the Town Hall, Evangelismos Orthodox Church and continues to the Monte Smith Hill which offers a magnificent view of the Aegean and the City of Rhodes.

Thereafter our drive continues past the ancient Rhodes Acropolis dedicated to Zeus Polieus, Athena Polias and Pythian Apollo. Four columns of this Acropolis have been reconstructed. We continue to the 2nd century BC ancient Stadium and Theatre. Both the Stadium and Theatre have been restored.

Then we reach the D’ Amboise Gate of the Medieval City and continue on foot visit the Grand Masters Palace, the most imposing building of medieval Rhodes. It was originally built in the 14th Century, but demolished by an explosion in 1856. It was restored in 1939, during the Italian occupation.

We continue down to the ‘The Street of the Knights,’ which, in spite of the restoration of its buildings, has remained untouched by the passage of 500 years, since it was originally built in the 14th century. The Gothic order predominate the entire street. The Inns of Kinights, consulates, chapels and churches as well as houses lead the way to the Hospital of the Knights, an impressive Archaeological museum by now (visit not included). Time to self-explore, before return to the port or hotel.
